Saving oil, reducing energy consumption, ensuring clean waste water. This is what Filta stands for with its mobile services for deep fryers and frying oil for the catering industry. From now on, Filta’s sustainability commitment will also include reforestation campaigns as part of the climate protection partnership with PLANT-MY-TREE®.

Last week, the first trees were planted: 100 copper beech trees - the Tree of the Year 2022 - were planted in Straupitz on an area of approx. 300 sqm in the unique Spreewald Biosphere Reserve.

“By using our mobile fryer services including fryer cleaning and filtering of frying oil, our customers from the gastronomy sector are already making an important contribution to more sustainability,” says Managing Director Jos van Aalst.

“We would also like to set another example in the joint fight against climate change and in future plant a tree with our customers and franchisers for every 100 litres of frying oil saved. The following campaigns will then bear the label of our customers,” van Aalst is pleased to say.

Since 2007, PLANT-MY-TREE® has been carrying out reforestation projects to offset CO2 throughout Germany. For the time being, the goal is environmental and climate protection in Germany, i.e. where our CO2 emissions also occur.
